Taff Trail Gem

You couldn’t get any more picture-perfect than us! Our cosy cottage-like pub is quite the gem, located in Morganstown just on the outskirts of Cardiff city.

We’re just off the Taff Trail which leads to the fascinating River Taff and up past Castell Coch. It's a great place to walk the dog and we are there at end of it to welcome you with a nice, refreshing pint.

We have a fantastic play area and a beer garden which offers a lovely spot to chill with a drink and enjoy an al fresco meal, while the youngsters play safely.

When you step inside our pub it is beautifully open-plan, with the light from the windows creating a light and airy environment. The oak beams and log fires then give it a traditional cosy welcome on those chilly winter days.

We are also proud to offer a fantastic range of function and event packages to cater for all occasions. From formal, three course sit-down meals with arrival drinks, to an evening buffet with accompanying entertainment, we would love you to see what we have to offer.

For your no-obligation appointment with our special events coordinator, contact us on 029 2084 3009 or email



The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
